Hi again,

So I have this money to buy Windows8 tablet.

Don't want RT as I need run full program's to code etc.

Mainly coding, music, movies and few games.

Thank you in advance.

Does it have to be Windows 8? I think the best tablet money can buy right now is the Nexus 7. Given that you have a higher budget, maybe go for the new Samsung 10" or wait till September and see what Apple comes out with.

I think by full programs he pretty much means desktop Windows applications, so that knocks out Android and iOS.

 

The Dell XPS 12 and Microsoft Surface Pro are two obvious options that spring to mind in that category (though the former is more laptop than tablet).

If you're not in a big hurry, wait to see what the next Surface Pro is like.

I second this also avoid Nexus 7 since its having a lot of problems. It's yet to be determined whether its software or hardware related.

1.5x to double your budget, then we'll talk tablet PCs. As it stands you can probably get a Surface Pro which'll do everything you said you need to do.

What problems is the Nexus 7 having? Mi e works perfectly and I haven't read about any issues. But I agree with others that you should wait for the next Surface Pro if you are dead set on Windows.
